Lies & Tricks!

Posted by Cyberdevil - 7 days ago

Want to join in on a random seven day game jam hosted by the highly spontaneous @ChibiWilli who just asked if I'd help spread the word about a jam if he'd decide to host one and then moments later hit me back with this link that holds all the details you'll need to get started on said game if you so choose to join?

The theme is lies, games that'll tell you one thing, but aren't actually telling the truth. First place wins 10 USD, and digital trophies await for all top three. :) The jam starts in an hour and a half and the deadline is February 27th 2021 at 12:08 AM! (EST? Maybe? Click link above for counter)

If you have a moment to spare this weekend and five days and feel like delving into the realm of falsehood and trickery maybe this is just the thing for you!

Never made a game before? It's never too late to start.

Could possibly enter your game into the Flash Forward jam at the same time if you happen to dabble with Flash too, if this is a non-exclusive thing? Direct potential ponderings as such regarding the jam here plz.

Good luck. And/or may the best jam win.

UPD: 27th now! Still time.

I'll be very impressed if people are able to manage to submit a game to both my jam and the flash forward jam.

If anyone attempts to make a Flash game with a lies and tricks theme though, is it alright to submit the same game to both jams?

I wouldn't mind as it isn't against my rules, not sure about the flash foward jam rules though.

Awesome. :) Was about to say I don't think the Flash Jam's an exclusive on in the last comment but... not sure. I don't think so though. Have vague memories of reading something along the lines of it being possible to submit stuff both for Pixel Day and the Flash Jam too earlier on...

This doesn’t relate to your new post, but you actually spoke to a person who died 2 months later, check the March 4th post and click on oldest, I found you! https://thegimpsta.newgrounds.com/news

Oh damn, didn't remember that comment. Wish I'd posted something a bit more inspiring looking back... didn't know him personally but he seemed like a good dude.

I talked more to Munguia though, that was really unexpected, as was Livecorpse back in the day... the one I interacted most with was probably CheeseCakeLOL. Had a collab going right before she died back in 2014. :/ You wonder if you maybe could've said or done something to keep some of these people alive, with TheGimpsta at least that was long-term disease, but so many of the ones on the Memoriam page took their own lives. The fragile minds of good artists...

I remember theGimpsta and that post back when he passed in 2008. Very sad.
was the cause of death for CheeseCakeLOL ever specified?

Indeed. Strong dude looking back. Battling that cancer pretty much his whole life.

As for CheeseCakeLOL I don't think it was no, just assume so since they didn't want to disclose any details, and she'd been battling depression for some time. Don't suppose we'll ever get to know for certain though.

@S3C @Cyberdevil yeah. Losing an arm is very tough, worse he only had 20!

Yeah. :/ And lung cancer at least since he was 15.

Also check the news of the birthday at 20, read the comment of https://wraith2000.newgrounds.com/

Birthday at 20? 20th post? 20th page (just 11 though)...? Not sure which you're referring to?

Just made an interesting post, it’s about audios but whatever

I'll check it out. :)

Is it true that livecorpse made a suicide note in a news post? I mean, it’s now gone but I just want to know https://livecorpse.newgrounds.com/

Hmm pretty sure we didn't have the user newspost thing back then, but maybe you're referring to this: https://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/139349#bbspost2502089_post_text

He's the only user I know of who actually sent in a note...

@lokidnb @Cyberdevil his 20th birthday, if you don’t know it’s on december 2007

Hmmm but he doesn't have any newsposts that far back, and nothing about a birthday in his BBS history either... still confused.

I think he mentioned he had osteosarcoma (a type of bone cancer), and the cancer metastasized to his lungs. Osteosarcoma is typically an adolescent cancer, lung cancer at that age is very rare.

Ah, alright, apparently added in the lung part myself. His comment response back in the day was simply: Yea, I've had cancer since I was 15 (around 5 years)

A misconception is that Adam Fulton (Livecorpse) committed murder, but this is not true:

Officer Down

Tucson Police Officer Jobe Dickinson was shot in the leg while pursuing a suspect who had stabbed a man at the Desert Wind Apartments, near Country Club Road and Speedway Boulevard, last Tuesday, June 8. While Dickinson and the stabbing victim were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at a local hospital, the suspected shooter, Adam C. Fulton, eluded police. Acting on a tip from police in San Jose, Calif., TPD officers returned to Fulton's residence three days later, where they found him dead of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound

His friend's name was never released, but Officer Jobe Dickinson is alive and well and as of 2018 was still part of the police department. Shooting a law enforcement official is an aggravated charge but he had no priors, so he would have served 7.5 years. He would be out of jail for a decade now. A guilty plea would probably let him serve time for the other assault concurrently. But I'm no lawyer, just reading the Criminal Statutes. So yeah, Livecorpse f*cked up big time, but he didn't kill anyone, and I wonder if he was given this information he may think twice about taking his life. Prison in America is hardly rehabilitative but there's a chance to reflect in jail and come out a better person.

Mmm, makes it all the more sad. Though I recall him writing something along the lines of how he just wouldn't manage prison.. 'I am too weak to make it in prison, and have too many mental problems'. Maybe life or 7.5 wouldn't have made a difference, but who knows now...

I like this idea! It's great! Great idea! Unfortunately... I'm already busy with a lot of activities and would like to finish 'Scene 2' by the end of the month. Take care!

Thanks for the response at least. :) Indeed we're all pretty swamped with projects these days! All the best!

@Mejson @Cyberdevil Thank you! You too!

Thank you too! :)

@lokidnb @Cyberdevil @Cyberdevil you got confused by a lot, just forget it

Yeaaah I'm pretty confused at this point. XD If you have a link to the particular post/newspost/whateveritwasthough it'd be intriguing to read

Is there anyway I can change my profile to the original one (tank man)? It’s not that I’m going to change it, I just wanna know

Can you delete your current image? If no then I don't know if there is a way. Don't want to try anything myself there, very much happy with that I got. :)

ever recursively visited a website on the Archive? (not sure if possible)
I'm thinking if the Archive deletes an entry (say: robots.txt is enabled)
you go to the Archive via the Archive itself and conduct the search within

Recursively visited as in... gone though in it's entirety? I know I've tried with smaller sites, but don't think I've seen one yet that really had everything there. Not all sites have a robots.txt though.

Ahhh a search within a search... just tried it with the official Wayback within the Wayback but unfortunately that just redirects to the official one. I'm pretty sure you CAN get into some weird iframe loops if you find the right site, but actual archived search functionality? Don't think that'd work so well.

@lokidnb Though of course you could just upload the default image as your own image too, just save it from a random new profile if you need it.

RE: automating blog posts, Audio List, NewGrounds markup language
did you remember anything from @lokidnb's yesterday, I suppose you responded to my posts. I was looking forward to your responses but didn't get a chance to read them. I had 3 'empty' notifications that I suspect were from that post.

RE: The DefaultMan
In the 2007-2012 layout you could delete your avatar/user image/banner, but I don't think that's possible anymore. Also, saving tankman from a profile is not changing your image to the original/default tankman, it's changing it to a saved image of tankman.

Whaaat he deleted all again? :/ I think I'll need to start avoiding that comment section @lokidnb, entire conversations continually getting purged like that...

Don't recall exactly what I wrote in regard to automation otherwise, if anything, but for the formatting bit in particular: the way I manage that for the Hexalist updates is keep an HTML template in a .txt file, which I edit and paste into the editor on my own site first, switch from HTML to Visual view in the Rich Text Editor there, and copy over the output to the NG editor. That works fine, just need to add in extra line breaks too since NG for some reason uses a double line break for each single one (you'll notice if you try copying a post here elsewhere).

Any Rich Text Editor should work for this, though not sure what to recommend there, if you don't know any better ones a WP demo site somewhere would probably work fine. Tom supposedly uses a similar approach to make his news posts, or used to, not sure now.

RE: The DefaultMan That's true, though visually it'd be the same, at least for now. Potential benefit: your default image won't get changed along with everyone else's if they happen to update that default image.

lokidnb's newspost*

*got it

nm just picked up some Wasa gluten-free Swedish flatbead crackers hbu?

Whaaaat, for real? Do they sell those in regular stores there, or visiting some Special Scandinavian one?

Didn't even know Wasa had any gluten-free ones! I've been eating a tonna Friggs rice cakes the last few years. Occasionally some https://www.apotea.se/semper-grovknacke-215-g or https://www.apotea.se/frasbrod-130-gr
